Soul:ution ft. Loxy, Spirit, Marcus Intalex, Bane and MC DRS

27 February / 23:00 / More Info / Buy Tickets

Soul:ution is back, with the city’s most influential drum & bass heads exploring all the best nooks and crannies of a pretty massive genre together with guests Loxy & Spirit.

Loxy (Metalheadz / Cylon / Xtinction Agenda)

Loxy’s productions, selections and blending style having helped influence pretty much all the elements of d&b from the first days of the now seminal Blue Note club up. A B-Boy and fan of hip hop and electro in the late 80s, he naturally fell into pirate radio broadcasts, opening his eyes to the futuristic sounds of acid house and techno. He hunted down vinyl with insatiable dedication, and started to share his collection and talents behind the decks. His accretion of dubplates, mixed with his own darker, dub influenced productions make his sets stand out. Loxy heads up Cylon Recordings, as well as a joint imprint with Keaton of the Usual Suspects, Xtinction Agenda and his most recent imprint, Cx:Digital. His discography and DJ sets under the Loxy name, alongside his label endeavours tend to speak well enough - and loud enough - for themselves.

Spirit (Certificate 18 / Phantom Audio / Metalheadz):

Spirit aka Duncan Busto, is founder of Phantom Audio alongside partner Digital. A solid figure in d & b, he played alongside Mr. C. and Colin Faver before starting produce his own racks as Spirit and setting up studio with Klute (Certificate 18) mid 90s.  His tracks gained strong support from LTJ Bukem, Peshay, Grooverider and Fabio amongst others. Now, producing with Digital, the pair have proved to be a invisible team releasing tunes on Metalheadz, Timeless and Photek. This is a man who knows his stuff, and we can’t wait to hear what he has in store for us.

And of course, Soul:ution residents, the iconic Soul:r crew, Marcus Intalex, Bane (Eastern Bloc) & MC DRS will take hold of the rest of the night to heat up the city!

Time once again for Mr. Scruff's monthly residency at The Band on the Wall.

As always, Scruff will be at the controls for 5 1/2 hours, serving up a melting pot of jazz, soul, hip hop, funk, disco, deep house, reggae, afrobeat, latin, and plenty of goodies that don’t fit into any category.

Expect fantastic sound, a lovely mixed crowd & great atmosphere.

In the meantime listen to the mix from New Year's Eve ft. Floating Points to get you in the mood.

This is a non-mobile disco.

Please don’t use cameras and phones on the dancefloor.

We ask this because we want the dancefloor to be a place where everyone can be in the moment. If you’re tweeting, texting, bidding for a pair of socks on eBay or taking a picture of your friends, you’re not only out of the moment, you also might be making it hard for someone else to be in the moment. The bar or balcony is a much better place for this.

Just announced: Azymuth, 1st March.

Azymuth

01 March / 19:30 / More Info / Tickets on sale Wednesday, 9am

Legendary Brazilian jazz and proto funk fusionists Azymuth get back to the live scene to celebrate the band’s upcoming ruby anniversary, and we are thrilled to welcome them to Band on the Wall.

Combining funk, soul and jazz with samba, Azymuth are the legendary Brazilian three-piece orchestra who were responsible for creating a new sound and genre of their own – ‘Samba Doido (Crazy Samba)’. José Roberto Bertrami, Ivan Conti and Alex Malheiros made up the trio originally – legendary musicians who together have released over 20 albums in four decades and who, since reforming in 1995, have delighted their fan base with their outstanding albums for Far Out Recordings.

Despite the loss of José Roberto Bertrami in 2012 the band has not stopped spreading his music all over the world. Quoting Ivan Conti, “Azymuth was our north and our unity” and thus, their mission is to keep his work alive and pay homage to Jose, their friend and Maestro.

Their music has a worldwide fan base. In England, Azymuth was the first Brazilian group to feature number one in the charts and their 40-year career has produced more than 300 productions, worldwide. Having toured the world over four decades in support of their vast catalogue, the band has in recent years played spectacular shows and consistently sold-out renowned clubs & events in the UK.

This tour will feature pianist virtuoso Fernando Moraes, a lifetime fan and student of José Roberto Bertrami and will feature a similar keyboard set up.
